On October 4, Margaret Ransohoff hosted a Horticulture Propagation Workshop on her lovely back garden terrace. (BTW, she is the only person I know of who plants for a late summer to fall garden — most of us plant for early spring and summer.)
Fourteen of us took cuttings from geraniums and begonias. We worked to the best of the experiential abilities, aided by online advice. We hope to have lots of good young plants to show at the GCA flower show our club is hosting on May 19th.
If you have never attended this kind of workshop, please come to the ones we will host in the future. After all, this is a garden club. People who participated in the workshop will have a leg up on their container plants for next summer. It is loads of fun to work together in the dirt — a splendid time was had by all.
